If you’re looking for a completely free squeeze page, then you have several options to choose from. If you do have some money to invest, it’s not a bad idea to do it in a squeeze page. These are the pages that you will use to generate leads, or business contacts, and eventually sales, so having a professional, converting page is something worth spending money on.
But if you are just starting out, you can do just fine with a free squeeze page. One site that offers this type of product is InstantSqueezePageGenerator.com. Sign up (for free, of course) and then create a basic squeeze page by following the directions. You will need to either purchase an auto-responder from this service or use the code from your existing auto-responder.
Blinkweb.com is another site that offers free service. This one actually gives you the choice of doing a website, blog or salespage and it comes with step-by-step tutorials to walk you through exactly what to do.
If you are just looking for squeeze page templates, then you also have quite a choice. You can really go into Google and just type in the term “free squeeze page templates” and you’ll get quite a list.
If you have decided to go your own route and design your own free pages, there are some tried and true guidelines that you want to meet. For example, you will want to use a brick red headline, in bold, and possibly followed by a black, bold sub-heading.
Your heading must be compelling – it must grab your visitor’s attention right away and make them want to read or, in the case of a video squeeze page, to listen further. And somewhere right in the beginning, not necessarily in the headline but just under it, you want to tell the visitors exactly what they are going to get. Don’t make them search for what you are offering.
Next, remember that you want the page to be as clear, uncluttered, and simple as possible. Make sure that your visitor knows exactly what you want him or her to do. If your goal is just to get his or her contact details, your opt-in form should be towards the top — don’t make your visitor scroll down because he or she may not get that far. And whatever it is that you are offering in exchange for their contact details has to be good– a free sample, free information, a free consultation. Make sure it is targeted specifically towards your target market.
Testimonials are another key to effective squeeze pages. People want social proof–in other words, the proof that what you are offering has benefited or is benefiting others. Even adding just one testimonial can make a world of difference from having nothing. As with anything else, you will need to test and track your free squeeze page to see what works and what doesn’t.
